Letters From the House Between
spacer Letters From the House Between
Summer Into Fall #1 2014
Publication Date: 08/18/2014

I was told by a friend that I would need to eat an enormous amount of crow after moaning about down-sizing to a thousand square feet, but back in March I had no idea we were going to have more flexibility than we imagined. You may remember, we had just sold Toad Hall and were staggered that it was only on the market for three days, when we received four offers and all were more than our asking price. After much euphoria and relief we were immediately under pressure to find a place and get out by July.

Spring #2 2014
Publication Date: 08/17/2014

We live in a climate where the seasons are sharp. There is no mistaking them. Winter freezes everything including our senses; but they waken again with the shifting south wind, in slight rises in temps, in clouds changing from steel gray to white muslin, when it is still well below freezing, we sniff the air and say, “I smell spring!”

spacer I am writing this on November 5th, the day after the mid-term election. Whether you are pleased by the results or unhappy about them, may I suggest a few things? The election is not the harbinger of either the national turn-around you have hoped for or the beginning of the apocalypse you have long dreaded. Democracy works only when good people compromise for the common good. And civility is essential--listening and speaking with care and kindness--if we are to have a national conversation that does not descend into shrill rhetorical posturing.

We don't concentrate on politics in Ransom because we believe that culture is prior to politics. So we try to think about and reflect on the perennial issues that seem to matter most. We hope you'll find the resources we've posted here helpful in that process. Thanks for visiting.
